Name: Kerry Lockhart

Years working at Tri-State Outfitters: 4 months.

Tri-State Outfitters Store: Lewiston

Position at Tri-State Outfitters: Sporting Goods

Favorite outdoor activities: Shooting, Hunting, and Fishing.

Favorite places to recreate: I’ve been hunting in Eastern Washington for years – favorite spot is in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Mostly hunt deer and elk, although I love to hunt just about anything. Favorite fishing spots are the Snake and Clearwater Rivers.

Favorite product to use in the field:  I love my Browning shotguns and Tikka 270WSM rifle. I’ve got a pretty good gun collection so I like to mix it up a bit – probably shot the most game with my old trusty Ruger 77 300WinMag. Gotta go with Sitka for hunting clothing – expensive but worth every penny.  As far as fishing, just got a jet boat so I’m looking forward to learning the rivers and getting better at steelhead fishing. Great camping up the Snake in Hells Canyon, so that’s on the short list once I’ve learned how to run the rapids on the way up. My favorite rod/reel combo is my St. Croix spinning rod with a Penn Battle reel, but I just set up a new steelhead rig with a Rogue rod and Shimano baitcaster that I’m itching to try on later this summer.
